Hannah. Clever. Addictive. Sometimes humorous.
The difference between bisexuality and pansexuality: a powerpoint guide.
why the fuck can’t you just be attracted to who you’re attracted to. who needs to split hairs with these fucking prefixes. splitting hairs to me
Our communities are important to us. I’m not saying everyone needs to have a label, or even has to have one as specific as these. But I have found that having that identity- being Bisexual, has given me a sense of community, solidarity, and most importantly validation.
I don’t really care if it feels like “Splitting hairs” to others.
holy shit it’s LITERALLY THE ONLY GRAPHIC on Tumblr about bi/pansexuality that doesn’t make me feel like shit and acknowledges that some of us are older queer individuals who don’t have a connection to the pansexual term and sometimes have specific preferences in some genders. HOLY SHIT.
oh boy here we go
Sexuality is defined by biological sex (your rude bits, basically), not by gender. Gender, instead, is a factor in romantic attraction. Romantic orientation and sexual orientation are not mutually inclusive. Gender is a series of performative acts where your culture has written the script, whereas biological sex is a binary (I’m ignoring hermaphrodites, yes, but they’re such a small minority of people and it’s a whole other can of worms). Therefore, “bisexual” is the only term required for sexuality. Romantic attraction, on the other hand…
Pansexuality is not wrong; it’s merely mislabeled. It’s not a sexual orientation, it’s a romantic one.
Not according to every major bisexual organization in the country.
You can be attracted to a person without ever seeing their genitalia. Saying that attraction is only based on sex is simply wrong. (Hell, so is defining sex just by genitalia) We see their gender presentation, and that is the basis for attraction most times.
Also, sex is not the simply binary you are trying to present it as. There are intersex people, as you mentioned (which using some very outdated and potentially offensive vocabulary) but that’s not all. Chromosomes and genitalia do not always “match up” the way you were taught in middle school science class after all.
